    1.Local restaurants

    The Pig’s Ear on Nassau Street offers wonderful traditional cuisine with a contemporary twist. The Cellar Bar in The Merrion is also a great spot for some Irish cuisine.

    2.Good to know

    Great new bars and restaurants are opening all the time. I would always recommend making a reservation early to avoid disappointment. People ask about tipping in restaurants and I always say there are no hard and fast rules about tipping in restaurants in Ireland. Generally speaking, if you were very happy with your experience 10 - 15% is considered to be an international guideline.

    3.Dublin

    There are countless things to see and do for people – the ones I recommend as must-sees are The Book of Kells in Trinity College, Kilmainham Gaol and the National Museum of Ireland on Kildare Street – here you'll find fascinating archaeology displayed over seven galleries.

    4. Tranquil spaces

    St Stephen’s Green and Merrion Square are both beautiful green spots in Dublin. The Dillon Garden is also a peaceful haven away from the commotion of the city

    5. Walking and cycling tours

    Dublin City Bike Tours offers private tours of Dublin by bicycle – you can even take a picnic to enjoy during the day. If a walking tour is your preference, Georgian walking tours are a favourite of our guests.

    6. Hidden treasures

    The Glasnevin Cemetery is a real hidden gem and well worth visiting. Equally, the Skyline Tour of Croke Park is breathtaking.

    8. Traditional pubs in Dublin

    There is a “Golden Mile” of bars and restaurants on Baggot Street and Merrion Row, which happens to be right on The Merrion’s doorstep. Try O’Donoghue’s and Doheny & Nesbitt for a traditional experience.

    9. Best day trip from Dublin

    Day trips to County Wicklow – the Garden of Ireland – are very popular with our guests. It's close to Dublin but you really get a sense of Ireland’s beautiful countryside.

    10.The best part about Dublin

     

    It would have to be the people – Dubliners are so warm and friendly with a great “gift of the gab” – they make visitors to the city feel like they are in a home away from home.
